This site is a prototype-stage project developed by the Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) which contains access to thermal feature maps and microbial data of Yellowstone National Park via an Internet map server. A tutorial of the map server system is provided in the link to the map server. Within the map server one can create maps with varying scales and features as well as locate specific colonies of microorganisms using the microbial database.
